When I was about 10, I found a little toy light bulb in a junk drawer at home. Neither me nor my brothers ever knew what the heck it did, but we always saw it in that drawer. One day, it accidentally got exposed to some light and that night, we noticed something glowing in the dark coming from that junk drawer! Yup, it was that little toy light bulb!..We thought it was the coolest thing ever! A little plastic light bulb that glowed in the dark when exposed to light! This was like 1962...A few years later, an exhibit opened in town that featured various artist creations that "lit up" - it was the most incredible stuff I ever saw! That was the first time I ever saw a "strobe" light and black lights - that was 1965 and I've been hooked on "light up stuff" ever since. I went to rock concerts just to see what lighting effects the bands had. I love things that light up - and today - with LED's cheap and powerful, the light up effects are endless. Today, things are very different from that day I discovered that little glow in the dark light bulb!...
In 2006, my son and I brought some light up American Flag blinky pins with us to the local 4th of July celebration. Everyone came up to us wanting to buy them! The following year we did it it again! Later, we started adding a few more things, and the reaction was amazing! Eventually, we bought, tested, played with, and sold nearly every light up novelty item we could find. Unfortunately, what we discovered wasn't all wonderful. The online importers would put photos of items that looked super cool - but were not cool at all once we got them in our hands. The quality varied crazily too. Sometimes only one out four items would even work at all! Sometimes they arrived broken or broke shortly after we played with it. The companies would NOT take them back either! They said that's the work ethic in China (where all these gadgets are made). Too bad for us. We didn't like that. When we sell at an event, if an item stops working a few minutes after playing with it, customers get mad. And I don't blame them. We always exchange it or refund their money. I decided if we ever started selling light up novelties on the internet, we would treat customers the same way - with fairness. And, we would ONLY sell the BEST stuff - NOT stuff that looked cool in a photo or a gif, but was a big letdown in person. If it's dumb, we don't want to sell it. Finally, we decided we would REALLY tell folks what the item DOES, by giving detailed descriptions and videos that show the item in action. This is rarely done by any of the online sellers. Well, we have now started a website. And though we are still "under construction", we are "open for business" and plan to keep our promise. My son Travis and I are nuts about "cool stuff that lights up or glows"...I'm guessing YOU are too or you wouldn't be here! We offer you the COOLEST stuff, with the BEST QUALITY, at a FAIR price! We TEST every item before we ship it to you, we usually throw in EXTRA BATTERIES or a FREE GIFT or BOTH, and you have my personal cell number (651-442-4448) if you ever have a problem, a question, or just want to gab about light up stuff! That's how much we LOVE this business and how eager we are to earn YOURS!
THANKS for stopping and for giving us a shot!
